ASV notes on Genesis 16:6-11 and questions

שלום חברי   רוח הקודש

God through Jesus cares for you

An angel

Sarah was the wife of Abraham and still the mistress in her house, and Abraham allowed Sarah to threat Hagar, as she wanted. Sarah was rough towards her made and Hagar fled into the dessert. It was not the will of God that Hagar should have a child with Abraham; however, God is a fair God and sent an angel to comfort her in her escape into the dessert.

God cares for all

Abraham accepted that Sarah was hard with Hagar, but God didn’t like it and the angel comforted her, telling her about the future, about her son Ishmael and said; “Because the Lord has heard and paid attention to your persecution” and Hagar went back to her mistress in assurance that God was looking after her too.

He paid

God is watching you too, He knows what you are going through, and He would love to help you, but he needs to connect to your heart. God is spirit and you are flesh, there is no direct line between spirit and flesh. You need to install a spiritual internet into your heart to receive from God. In addition, that “internet” is Jesus; He works 24/7 and is free because He paid the price for you.

Questions 

  1. How can we find the will of God for our life?
  2. Does God know you, even if you do not know Him?
